    San Antonio, TX

    ProsLots of opportunity given high growth
    Collaborative culture means you get a voice
    Open book environment means lots of information shared

    ConsHigh growth means lots of org changes and shifts
    High growth also means lots of urgent projects and not enough time for forward thinking efforts

    Advice to Senior Managementadd process where you need it; don't add it where you don't - finding the right balance is key and hard.

    Working here is truly like working with "Friends and Family"!

    Windows Systems Administrator II (Current Employee)
    San Antonio, TX

    ProsWorking here is like working with a big extended family. Everyone treats you with respect and concern. If you need any help or advice, your teammates are always there for you.

    ConsThe pay could always be higher. Everyone thinks that wherever they work. I do feel that Rackspace is a little below the average though.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYes, your Rackers are the source of your Fanatical Support. We are the secret sauce! The salary pool could use a pretty hefty increase. Not only to hire more people, but to allow for promotions and pay increases for your seasoned Rackers!
